Movie Consulting from the Department of Defense

Organizations like the CIA and Department of Defense have been assisting with blockbusters like Transformers for years. However, there have been complaints from insiders over potential security privacy leaks, raised during talks over an untitled film about the killing of bin Laden. Whether they have reason to be concerned or not, spokespeople insist there is a pragmatic reason for the comradery between Hollywood and national security: image control.
If you want to make a war film and need a fleet of F-22s, a crowd of Marines, or a Navy aircraft carrier, just call up the Department of Defense’s entertainment media office and they’ll tell you if the Army can spare that M1A1 Abrams tank you’ve always wanted for a day or two of filming.

“The scripts we get are only the writer’s idea of how the Department of Defense operates,” Vince Ogilvie, deputy director of the Defense Department’s entertainment liaison office, told Danger Room. “We make sure the Department and facilities and people are portrayed in the most accurate and positive light possible.”

Dialogue from the XtraNormal video featured on Wired explains things a bit differently:
Secret Agent Woman: "I'm glad you're going to make a movie about how awesome the Central Intelligence Agency is. Everybody that works here is very smart and we never mess up and most people are extremely good-looking too."
Michael Bay: "I agree because I want you to help me. Kaboom!"

set of Sango Black Nova dishes with completer set of bowl and platter. The set came with dinner plates,mugs and round plates, but I found I needed more plates for side dishes or desserts. I was delighted to find them at Amazon, and they were SQUARE. Of the two sets I ordered, one set arrived broken due to poor packing. Amazon made it easy to return and sent a new set in a timely fashion.

All part of the wonderful porn provided by our friends at the department of shitty-ass Michael Bay flicks while bolstering the, "You can't fuck with America don't even begin to try!" attitude.
Ask yourselves something like this the next time you enjoy seeing tax (or any other better used dollars) entertain you regardless of plot, dialogue, or content worth wasting popcorn money on....
